Forsaken

Now that he is gone, the world will be lost,

they put him on a tree, not counting the cost.

Spitting and ridicule, was their aggression,

he suffered and died for them, no question.

They did not believe, that he was the savior,

crown of thorns, beatings, was their behavior.

His father looked down, he turned away,

the son was dying, the sky turned grey.

Out of death, the promise fulfilled, 

to everyone his love, the spirit instilled.

Hells power was no more, the keys taken,

he ascended on high, to just the forsaken.

You chose a perfect title for the content of your poem. On my top 10 most fav movies is The Passion of the Christ...your poem has so many of the important messages of that movie. Hell's power no more, the keys taken, He ascended on high, to "just" the forsaken! Slam dunk of an ending, Aaron. Just great. I bet the spirit overtook you as you wrote this one! Have a blessed Christmas week. Gwendolen

I write my poetry, so people can read of the god that loves them, and that we have a choice, and that that choice is why we were created, i respect all people and their right to choose, and i choose to believe..

then you have this renegade bunch sucking on bottles of milk and choosing verses to believe in believing that posting erotica is given grace? no understanding of this thought..but a group of this people do exist,,,they do not have laws of God on the heart like hebrews says those who are saved are..it is common sense and a law to know posting porn is not of GOD..
